Sound — 8
The amp has four different amp models, clean, crunch, metal, and insane. I don't use metal or crunch too much, because just by turning the gain down on the insane channel I can get different distortion settings on it. The insane channel gives me all the distortion I could ever want, and I like playing metal a lot. I use clean a lot when I'm playing jazz or acoustic type songs, and the clean channel gives good tonal range.
Overall Impression — 9
I play a lot of rock, metal, and jazz stuff, and this amp gives me nice tones for each of these genres, plus a buttload of effects I can use for whatever I want. It's the only amp I've owned so far, but from what I've heard of other amps and what I've checked out at places, for the price, it is an amazing practice amp in my opinion. A great buy!
Reliability & Durability — 10
Reliability-wise, I've never had a problem with this amp. Nothing has ever broken down on it. It's a very durable amp, I've transported it to practice places, and it's fallen down in the trunk a few times, but nothings ever happened to it. It's also been knocked down in practice a few times by our bassist Who's rather clumsy, but again, nothings ever gone wrong, it's a very durable amp.
Features — 10
This amp is loaded with features, for a $100 15w amp. It has four different amp models, clean, crunch, metal, and insane. It has two effects knobs, so two can be on at once, and the effects are good standard effects one should have in their arsenal in my opinion, like reverb, tape echo, sweep echo, chorus/flanger, tremolo and phaser. It has a headphone jack for anyone who needs to practice in a quiet or household environment. It also has an eigth-inch input jack, for plugging in an mp3 player, CD player, any kind of stereo system you'd want to.
